The Active Ham's Magazine

CQ is the magazine for active hams, with a focus on the practical. Every article is clearly written and aimed at involving you, the reader...whether it's a story of operating from some exotic location, an article to deepen your understanding of ham radio science and technology, or a fun-to-build project that will have practical use in your ham shack.

CQ is available in both print and digital editions!

Join us on our monthly journey through the broad and varied landscape of the world's most fascinating hobby!
